Unlimited Employees

Our payroll software does not set a limit on the number of employees you can add to your payroll. And there are no confusing price brackets that depend on the number of employees you have.

Payroll Bureau

The Bureau version of BrightPay is the perfect way to manage payroll for several employers. There is no limit on the number that can be set up and no confusing pricing structures.

Full ROS Compatibility

Starters, leaves, year end, and Revenue payments. BrightPay will guide you through the process of creating ROS compatible P45, P46, P45 Part 3, P35 and P30 files.

Back to the Future

In BrightPay, any employee (or group of employees) can be individually reverted back or progressed forward in the payroll year at any time. It's super flexible yet safe and simple.

Easy Payslips

Payslips can be emailed or exported to PDF at the click of a button. They can also be printed on A4 or A5 paper (blank or Thesaurus stationery). Handy customisation options let you do what you need.

Live pay calculation

As you enter payments, additions and deductions for your employees, a live payslip preview will automatically update to show you the calculated payslip values quickly and clearly.

Simple Period Navigation

BrightPay supports weekly, fortnightly, 4-weekly and monthly payroll. The payroll screen gives a clear overview of all periods together and any period can be quickly accessed with one click.

Let BrightPay Remind You

Is an employee starting or leaving? Has an employee recently turned 66? BrightPay will let you know what is happening when and remind you what to do.

Your Data is Secure

Each employer set up in BrightPay requires a password to save and open. The payroll software stops you from performing actions which would invalidate or corrupt your payroll data.

Powerful Reporting

Our payroll software allows you to recall, view and analyse all your payroll data. Multiple reports can be opened together, saved or favourited, exported in popular formats, and printed.

New strategic state bank to help fund SMEs

The new Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI), a multi-funded strategic bank, was launched by the government on Friday. The aim of the state-backed scheme is to make lending available to small and medium sized businesses.

Minister for Finance Michael Noonan and Minister for Public Expenditure Brendan Howlin launched the scheme in a ceremony in Farmleigh House in Phoenix Park, Dublin. German finance minister and the head of the European Investment Bank (EIB) were also in attendance.

The new SBCI will make an initial €800 million available for SMEs to borrow money at more favourable terms, allow for longer term loans, and to support expansion and job creation. Mr Noonan said “we have big plans for the SBCI and it will be a key source of funding for years to come”.

Initially the SBCI will be jointly funded by €150m from German Bank KFW, €400m from the European Investment Bank (EIB), and €240 from the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF).

The scheme is designed to help restart lending to SMEs and could facilitate up to €5 billion in lending to the SME sector over 5 years. Taoiseach Endy Kenny said “it will finance SMEs in first instance but can grow to finance other key sectors of the economy.”

Ireland’s SME sector has suffered a squeeze on credit and investment. SMEs can begin accessing the loan scheme from December this year and it will be administered by AIB and Bank of Ireland.

German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble said “I am confident the SBCI will help improve the economic situation and labour market in Ireland and contribute to Europe.” EIB president Werner Hoyer said the scheme could be a model for other European countries.
